obama administration second term foreign-policy would be? xp did not go that far. he had three main parts aside from syria, issuing an offer and a warning to iran, and a warning if the us policy is not containment, but to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon and his offer is they are ready to have talks but the supreme leader needs to be serious about negotiations. that was one thing. another theme was a reset with russia and he made it clear there were differences with russian leadership. it clearly sounds like they will work together on and ad hoc transitional basis. with europe, they said the good news and the bad news is we are not going anywhere, reaffirming the commitment to europe. >> that is a reassuring message. melinda, thank you very much. john kerry has been sworn in as us secretary of state, replacing hillary clinton to my taking his at a small ceremony in washington, dc. he has been in public life for three decades and is the 68 secretary of state, and among his priorities would be removing troops from afghanistan and improving us relations with pakistan. french

favorable as we saw during 2012. president obama has not announced any new initiatives to promote job growth in the united states, and i suspect he will not be announcing any new plans in the near term. if you look at his inaugural address, he seems to be more interested in other issues at this time rather than job creation. for example, he emphasized immigration reform, and he emphasized trying to develop new energy sectors of the economy. so i suspect he'll be focusing on these items rather than directly creating new jobs. >> now, the job market in the eurozone shows no sign of improving. europe union officials show the jobless rate in december was stuck at a record high. the officials say unemployment was 11.7% for the third month in a row. jobs are especiallycarce in countries whose leaders have taken austerity measures in return for bailouts from the eu and the imf. the highest unemployment rise was 26.1% in spain, followed by 16.5% in portugal, and 14.7 in ireland. eu officials announced greece's jobless rate for october. they said it was up .6 of a point on the month at 26.
